Yes… we can fix it too!
We provide service in house for nearly everything we sell. Regulators, BCDs, cylinders and valves are most of what we see on a regular basis. Many dive computer and transmitter battery changes can also be done here in our shop. We also keep a large inventory of parts, so in most cases we have what is needed to keep your equipment working properly and safely. All maintenance is done using oxygen safe lubricants and manufacturer supplied parts only. Most are safe for nitrox use for mixes up to 40% oxygen. If you require your equipment to be used with oxygen content above 40%, please let us know. **Not all scuba equipment can be used for high oxygen mixes.**
Some dive computer repairs and nearly all drysuit repairs need to be sent out to our distributors or to independent repair facilities.
Used parts will not be returned to customers unless requested when equipment is dropped off for service. Any used parts returned to customers will first be rendered unusable by our service technicians.

Console Service – gauges are removed from console boot, boot is cleaned, gauges are cleaned and the HP spool between the pressure gauge and the hose is cleaned and new o-rings are installed.
Regulator Inspection – regulator exterior is inspected visually (check hoses, mouthpieces, corrosion, etc.), regulator is bench tested on air to check first stage pressure and second stage work of breathing and then leak tested in water. Minor tuning may be required or a full Regulator Overhaul may be recommended on a case by case basis. No parts of the regulator are disassembled during a normal inspection.
BCD Overhaul – power inflator is disassembled, cleaned, reassembled using new parts (manufacturer’s supplied service kit) and inflator is leak tested in water.
